Syracuse University Library's Green Initiative Team has created the Green Library Guide, found at, to provide information about green initiatives at the library. In addition to highlighting the library's sustainability efforts, the guide includes links to national and international news about library-related green activities, an FAQ and a suggestion box.

The library's Green Team was established in fall 2008 to support the University's commitment to sustainability. The team is charged to research, develop and implement a set of sustainability best practices for the library, including ways of reducing energy consumption, increasing recycling and reducing the library's carbon footprint. The team will also develop and deliver educational programs about green activities and initiatives and connect the library to other campus green initiatives. The team will wrap up its work at the end of the spring semester, with a report summarizing activities and suggestions.

Green Team members include Paul Bern, Michele Combs, Tasha Cooper, Tom House, Tom Keays and Eli Liquori. For more information, contact Cooper at 443-9518 or
